Sculptor Laura Baring-Gould creates large-scale public sculptures, epic ephemeral installations, and small intimate objects that create wonder in the palm of a hand. A love of universal shapes, as well as a fascination with elemental materials that include bronze, honey, salt, beeswax, paper, natural materials, water, copper and light form the common bond within her projects. Developed independently or through incredible collaboration, each piece or experience is buoyant with mythological ballast.
Baring-Gould’s work has been sponsored by the National Park Service, the Institute of Contemporary Art, the DeCordova Museum & Sculpture Park, Creiger Dane Gallery, Boston Sculptors Gallery, Boston Center for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Scenic Hudson Inc., and through numerous grant & awards. Laura has taught for over twelve years at the University level (Clark University, University of Massachusetts, Boston), and has been an artist in residence at The Putney School, Wellesley College, Stone Hill College, the Art Institute of Boston and Silpakorn University, Bangkok. Her work has received awards including Best of Boston 2006 and 1995, with recognition from the American Society of Architects and Americans for the Arts Public Art program. Permanent public art works include the City of Boston (Edward Everett Square, Dorchester) the City of Cambridge (Fresh Pond) and commissions for Tower Hill Botanic Garden (Bolyston, MA).
